Many newer speakers don’t know
what to do with their hands.
They fiddle with things in their pockets
or wave them over their heads wildly
like they’re conducting an orchestra
or grip the podium
as though it were the last life raft.
“Take your hands out of your pockets!
One hand is acceptable
as long as the free hand
Remember to keep your gestures
within your power sphere
(that space starting at
eye level out to your sides,
to core and back up to eyes).”
Watch your hands
because the audience certainly is.
